New Zealand, (b. 1969)

Bringing his unique sense of humour ~ rock-solid insights ~ and his legendary creative genius ~ to The Vivian for the very first time ~ we’re proud that Martin is helping us ~ make a little bit of art history ~ with our very first V Project

As the name suggests, these new short-run, invite-only, project-based shows will offer a glimpse into the practice of some of New Zealand’s most significant artists. And we’re kicking off with one of the best – Martin Poppelwell (b.1969).

Martin is an artist who (thankfully) refuses to adhere to a single discipline, being known and loved for his drawings, paintings, ceramics, installations and sculpture. Bringing his unique sense of humour, rock-solid insights, and his legendary creative genius to The Vivian for the very first time, we’re proud that Martin is helping us make a little bit of art history with our very first V Project.

~ Bipartiss Solucius

This is Monique’s third show with us, and it's her most powerful yet. Utilising apparently destructive gestures in order to create the work, the tensions between surface and form, image and object, playfully blur the line between sculpture and painting.
